Murder, Mystery and Mayhem in New Hampshire

Have you ever wondered why New Hampshire is the place that so many author’s choose when they write about murders, secrets, mysteries and thrillers?

Well now you have the chance to hear from three of those authors at our Murder, Mystery and Mayhem in NH night at White Birch Books. There will be a panel of all three authors who will discuss each of their books and then answer questions from our moderator, Laura Cummings. Each author will have their books to sign afterwards.

Featured Authors:

Terry Boone, author of A Bad Night in New Hampshire
A Bad Night in New HampshireA suspicious death, the Presidential Primary, a bad actor in ‘off the record’ campaign fundraising, citizens with different views about some of the candidates, and the reemergence of a truly nasty character. This is book # 3 in the New England based mystery series featuring Vermont Private Investigator Michael Hanlon and the undercover guy Louie Ragsdale. The first two books, A Cold Morning in MAINE (2014) and A Quiet Evening in CONNECTICUT (2015), received wide and enthusiastic response from readers throughout the Northeast.

Rick Davidson, author of Murder at Stillwater Lodge
Murder at Stillwater LodgeRoger Harris, a guest at Stillwater Lodge in northern New Hampshire, is violently killed at the start of a holiday weekend. Retired Fish and Game Officer Rob Schurman and local cur-mudgeon Ike Roberts are at the heart of it all as this exciting story shifts gears from a whodunit to a thriller in fictional Clifford, New Hampshire (also the setting of Davidson’s “Catamount: A North Country Thriller”). Once again all is not as it seems in the peaceful, idyllic lakes and woods of the North Country.

Cathy Strasser, author of An Uncertain Grave
An Uncertain Grave A stray hiker reports finding a partially decomposed body on Mt Lafayette in the "North Country”. The investigative team of Cliff Codey and Mike Eldrich is sent out into the woods, trying to solve the case in spite of the weather, reticent and eccentric locals, and a bored, nosy New York reporter who competes with the troopers to discover the victim's identity. As the investigation widens, both teams contend with a variety of local residents who have secrets of their own and a shadow from Cliff's past that becomes intertwined with the current investigation. All these threads combine as the killer starts to advance out of hiding and prepares to take action to keep his secret and himself safe.

DIANE LES BECQUETS, author of Breaking WildCold River Radio Show live   Sunday, March 20, 7:00pm
Cold River Radio Show live with DIANE LES BECQUETS, author of Breaking Wild at Theater in the Woods.
Tickets are $25 on sale at White Birch Books, call 603-356-3200.

The Cold River Radio Show is a quintessential old-time radio show featuring exclusively New England based artists, performers, authors and storytellers. We’re selling tickets at the store and we’ll be selling books at the show for award-winning novelist Diane Les Becquets who will be discussing her debut adult novel, Breaking Wild.

In Les Becquets’ crisp, immersive novel, Amy Raye is a seasoned outdoorswoman who gets lost in the cold Colorado wilderness during an elk hunt. As she fights for survival, a local search-and-rescue worker named Prudence tries to find her—even if, she grimly realizes, she might just be looking for a body to give Amy Raye’s husband and children some peace of mind. We follow the weeks-long quest alternating between the women’s perspectives, and Les Becquets keeps suspense high by writing Amy Raye’s sections just a couple of days behind Pru’s search. She chronicles the harsh beauty of wintertime in the mountains while reminding us that people aren’t puzzles to be solved; they are fierce works in progress.

DIANE LES BECQUETS, author of Breaking Wild   Monday, March 21, Noon

In captivating prose, Diane Les Becquets tells the story of one woman missing in the Colorado wilderness and another bent on discovering the missing woman's whereabouts, in an unforgettably moving and thrilling literary debut.

It is the last weekend of the season for Amy Raye Latour to get away. Driven to spend days alone in the wilderness, Amy Raye, mother of two, is compelled by the quiet and the rush of nature. But this time, her venture into a remote area presents a different set of dangers than Amy Raye has planned for and she finds herself on the verge of the precarious edge that she's flirted with her entire life.

When Amy Raye doesn t return to camp, ranger Pru Hathaway and her dog respond to the missing person's call. After an unexpected snowfall and few leads, the operation turns into a search and recovery. Pru, though, is not resigned to that. The more she learns about the woman for whom she is searching, and about Amy Raye's past, the more she suspects that Amy Raye might yet be alive. Pru's own search becomes an obsession for a woman whose life is just as mysterious as the clues she has left behind.
Diane Les Becquets was hailed by Publishers Weekly as "a writer to watch" after the publication of her first novel, The Stones of Mourning Creek. In addition to teaching writing, she is an avid outdoors woman, enjoying archery, bicycling, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, backpacking, and hiking in the woods with her Labrador, Lacey. Before moving to New Hampshire she lived in a small ranching town in Northwestern Colorado for almost fourteen years, raising her three sons.
